"Best show on politics and our political process- bar none."

If you can past "Elaine" as the VP.
Better than "House of Cards"?

Enjoy,

The current one with Kevin Spacey? Yeah, by a country mile.

The original with Ian Richardson- yes, but not by so much (and it is of a different time).

I think KS's HoC is an idealized take on how DC operators would like to think they operate. Veep is about how they actually function.

Veep's Armando Iannucci was also a show runner for The Thick of It- which I need to watch. I would love a Malcolm Tucker guest spot for Veep > https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0MSScBIopM8 (I wonder if the 'wordsmith has a side job... ;-)
